Abstract : The current system used to administer Plant Account equipment for departments at the Naval Postgraduate School involves over 4500 items. The current Minor Property System is decentralized and encompasses approximately 60,000 items. A recent Naval Directive called for the centralization of Minor Property systems. This thesis was undertaken to assist the Command in compliance with this directive and to improve Command property management. Implementation of a management information system (MIS) to support property management functions would achieve these two objectives, as well as eliminate redundant data handling and improve property management administrative effectiveness. To aid in meeting the above objectives the following deliverables are presented in this paper: detailed system specifications for database application, data dictionary, file structures, and hardware specifications.
